Was able to cycle here easily from Finsbury Park Station due to the Hackney cycling and residential infrastructure and loads of cycle parking opposite the main stand. Came to see Manchester City Women take on Tottenham. Nice hotdog at £4, which is reasonable these days. Great view in the Justin Edinburgh main stand.

A proper football stadium where the fans are right up against the pitch, creating a good atmosphere. Being outside the Premier league there's also no large expanse of executive boxes or giant tv screens, but what you do get is an authentic matchday experience, with hot drinks and food on sale and a great family friendly environment.

Really good Stadium to watch football I was in the West Stand with an uninterrupted view of the pitch. I am not a regular Orient supporter but always enjoy the occasion when I do visit.

Went to watch the ladies play here with my son and his friend, was really good entertaining and reasonably priced, if I'm honest they could open more stands for the ladies. Great afternoon out

History (from Wikipedia)

Brisbane Road has seen several developments in its history, but due to the second world war the first major improvement was the levelling of a grass bank and crash barrier installation in 1949. The terracing behind the goals was improved again in 1952, 1959 and 1960. In 1956 a small seated stand was dismantled and replaced with a stand from the decrepit Mitcham Stadium, which held 2,600 fans. In 1962, with Leyton Orient gaining promotion to the First Division, another wing was added to the main stand making the seating total 3,500. In 1978 the West Stand was converted into all-seating. In 1996 the terracing at the southern end of the ground was demolished, and used as a car park while Lottery funding to build a stand was (unsuccessfully) sought. The South Stand was eventually built in 1999, and was renamed The Tommy Johnston Stand on 5 September 2008.[2]

The ground is currently called the Breyer Group stadium for sponsorship reasons. In the past it was named after Leyton Orient's chairman at the time 
Barry Hearn's sports promotion company, Matchroom Sport, prior to which it was officially the Leyton Stadium, though fans still refer to it as Brisbane Road. The club registered an interest into moving into the Olympic Stadium following the 2012 Olympics, as the original plan was for this to have a capacity of about 25,000; however, the club's average attendance of about 5,000 meant that this was not a viable move. The eventual bids from both West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur to move into the stadium,[3] with capacity nearer 60,000, effectively ended Orient's interest. Brisbane Road is in very close proximity to both the Olympic Park and also Hackney Marshes.

On 6 May 2012, Brisbane Road hosted a 
Super League game between London Broncos and Bradford Bulls due to works on the Broncos' home stadium Twickenham Stoop, with Bradford winning 22–29.

Every pizza we got was awesome and filling. We ordered the sauce with our last round and it gave the pizzas a little more flavor. We're definitely coming back. Read More
